Dr. Oz has tips to protect your skin during the year's harshest season.

  1. Watch the Cleanser. Make sure you use something that nourishes while it cleanses.
  2. Wear SPF! Either wear suncreen or makup with added SPF. 
  3. Feed your skin; it needs antioxidants and Omega-3 fats! Blueberries and walnuts are excellent sources, respectively.  
  4. Remember your ABC's. Take vitamins A, B and C. Vitamin A keeps your skin strong and allows it to create new layers. Vitamin B is an important metabolism enhancer and vitamin C  rebuilds the collagen at your skin's base. 
  5. Shorten your shower and use luke-warm water.
  6. Moisturize!
